Thank you for sharing this card. It’s perfect for my great-nephew’s middle school graduation next week.



Great card! Very good tutorial!

Thank you…I love your instructions… And the card!!



I did it! I made a graduation cap card! Thank you for your very clear and easy to follow instructions. Made the tassel and everything! I usually mess up some where but not following your instructions. Have a wonderful rest of your week!



This is so cute and SO easy! I have never heard of you and someone asked a question on FB in the Stamp Junkies group and in the answers one of the people posted your link! You are so funny. I am definitely making this for a Junior High graduation this week. Thank you for blessing my day and adding some fun to one home sick with a cold!

Of the three cards you made for graduation this is by far my favorite. I am planning to make one and send it to a dear friend whose son is graduating from high school. Thank you so much for all you do! You light up my day and right now you have no idea how much I need this. Huge enormous hugs (have Vinny deliver them) Polly



This is such a great idea, I will be making a lot of them, just by changing the top to what ever. Love your work.
Cheers from downunder.
